Looks like you might have been hacked.  I'd also look for other strange
stuff, ie check your logs for strange things and strange omissions, look
for recently changed files that you dont know anything about, look for
anything unusual in ps, netstat, lsof. 

If you really want to be safe, format and reinstall everything.  If you
don't want to do that, don't run any services you don't need, set up a
firewall, and keep an eye on things, etc.
